toile de jouy

my boss had a little fabric stash clear out a few weeks ago, and i become the lucky owner of some pretty awesome pieces.
this toile de jouy fabric was one of them, and although it's not usually something i'd go for (ie. fancy pants), i instantly thought of making cushions with it. our sofa is black, so these brighten it up perfectly and thankfully they seem to fit in with the rest of the lounge (not that we have any sort of theme/colour scheme!).

if you're new to inserting zips, don't let them scare you. zips on cushions are a good place to start, and the method i use is almost identical to |this one| and it works every time.

and speaking of decor and interiors, i have a few snippet photos of the flat (post decorating fiasco) which i'll be posting about soon :)


  1. I love this!
    Your are so crafty and they look super beautiful :)


  2. Such a pretty print, reminds me of those dainty blue china plate designs =) xoxo

  3. Very pretty! I've always been a bit daunted about inserting zips but I think I just need to give it a go and not care about the results! :-) x

  4. Oh I love this Skye! That print is one of my favourites, and cushion making is strangely therapeutic, I find. Really need to get back to my crafty ways this summer, I never seem to find time. xx

  5. Love these pillows! They're really beautiful
